"Creating a Backyard Haven..."
Many people approach gardening as a constant struggle against the outside world. They're perpetually at war with nature, investing in chemical treatments to fight off mammals, birds, and insects in an effort to preserve their garden as a pristine, unspoiled patch of earth.
Marlene A. Condon proposes a radically different method of gardening: What if, instead of battling the natural world, we invite it into our yards?
The result is a nature-friendly garden which attracts and meets the needs of common creatures while maintaining a thriving and varied landscape of flowers and other plants.
As this thought-provoking guide demonstrates, coexisting with nature doesn't mean turning your yard into a bramble-infested wilderness. The sustainable low-impact garden described in these pages is a model of environmental balance, fostering species diversity while keeping wildlife damage and invasive plant growth at an acceptable minimum.
Best of all, it offers a privileged look at the workings of nature, opening up a new and fascinating world for even the most experienced gardener.
